Tivy trips SV in 3
KERRVILLE - A case of lost concentration caused Smithson Valley to lose to Kerrville Tivy Thursday night in both teams' opening match of the season.
After winning the first game 15-7, the Rangerettes fell behind 10-2 in the second game. Smithson Valley’s rally fell short and the team lost 15-12. Wind the wind knocked out of their sails, the Rangerettes lost the match with a 15-7 third game.
“We looked really good in the first game," said Smithson Valley Coach Louise Davidson. “Kerrville couldn't do anything against us.
“But things kind of disintegrated from there. We made a good comeback in the second game but still wound up losing. In the third game, we were just tired. I’m not sure why," she said.
Shalynn McCoy led the Rangerettes with six kills. Tiffany Beene added five and Susan Davis had four Davis led the team in assists with IO.
Rosanna Wehe and Beene led the team in aces with three apiece.
"I thought we played more offensively, more agrressively, than Kerrville did. But then we started having problems returning serves and we didn’t keep the momentum going," Davidson said.
Even with the loss, Davidson said she was happy with the game because most of the players had a chance to see action.
“Ten of our 12 girls got to play so we looked at quite a few They just have to learn that you have to play every point and that you can’t let your guard down," she said.

"Uke I say ... he’s his own man,” said his father, Lenny “Boom Boom” Mancini, an ex-lightweight who probably missed a title shot because of World War ll.

Asked about that possibility, Ray Mancini smiled and said: “I’ve learned never to say never.”
“It’s time to get out of one phase of my life and get into another,” the former World Boxing Association 135-pound-class champion from Youngstown, Ohio, said after an

"Feb. 16 is the last day you’ll ever see Mancini in the ring. There are other things I want to do.
“Feb. 16 was a good, good day for me,” he added. “That day I won the world title again in my heart, my family’s hearts and my fans’ hearts.”
Last Feb. 16 at Reno, Nev., Mancini tried to regain the title from Uvingstone Bramble, to whom he lost it when stopped in the 14th round (Mi June 1,1985, at Buffalo, N.Y.
But while Maninci felt he won the rematch, the three judges all voted for Bramble, although the scoring was close.
